What channel is Ireland vs Argentina on today?

The Tullow Tank makes his return to worldwide action for the first time in a year this evening when Ireland host Argentina in the Aviva Stadium.

The visitors were bright throughout the match, but once again let done by some ill-discipline and scrum issues, which the home side punished.

Argentina exposed issues at the lineout, the restart and in Ireland's defensive game and if Ireland are as inaccurate next week they'll be in trouble.

Bundee Aki was pinged for a high tackle which allowed Sanchez to put his side back into the lead but on the stroke of halftime, Sexton added a long-range three-pointer of his own to give Ireland a narrow 15-14 lead at the break.

However, replacement scrumhalf Luke McGrath used a dominant scrum to his advantage to score what proved to be the decisive try that saved Ireland from potentially slipping to their first defeat of the year.

Wales' victory might have been more comfortable had fullback Leigh Halfpenny, usually so dependable from the kicking tee, not missed two simple penalty opportunities, one from directly in front of the posts.

"The Argentines would probably be a little bit more combative at the ruck than some of the other teams".

Argentina out-half Nicolas Sanchez opened the scoring with a hard penalty after Jordan Larmour was penalised for holding on after Ireland looked to keep the ball in hand early on. Sexton did have another attempt from halfway, but this time the ball flew under the bar.

Gatland also praised the decision to play Scotland as their opening November worldwide opponents last weekend, which culminated in a 21-10 victory that gave them momentum going into the clash with Australia. Conversions: Jonathan Sexton (2). Ireland were scrambling and Argentina shifted the ball to the space out right where Bautista Delguy went over unopposed. Penalties: Nicolas Sanchez (4). Tadhg Beirne doesn't even make the bench with Devin Toner the second-row reserve for James Ryan and Iain Henderson.

The ability to bring in experience off the bench, like first-five Dan Biggar and wing Liam Williams, gave Wales the impetus they needed in the closing stages, according to Gatland.

Guido Petti moves into the Pumas back row, while Santiago Medrano earns just his second Test start.

Subs: 16 Julian Montoya, 17 Juan Pablo Zeiss, 18 Lucio Sordoni, 19 Rodrigo Bruni, 20 Tomas Lezana, 21 Gonzalo Bertranou, 22 Joaquin Diaz Bonilla, 23 Matias Moroni.
